Networking No Comments

SCALEWIRELESS partner in networking equipment, AVM, released free software update to their flagship DSL router, Fritz!Box 7390, that brings comprehensive child protection and many more new features to the mass market.

Free software update to Fritz!Box 7390 has major improvements in child protection, what is essential for many parents who are struggling with children spending too much time in the Internet or accessing adult material. With the update it is now easy to restrict children’s access to the internet based on time schedule, time spend on internet; block certain websites or applications. All this is done on the router level that in comparison to computer based restriction software is more secure and tamper resistant.

Update also allows to use Fritz!Box as DECT repeater that allows to build seamless home networking and telephony in larger premises, where signal from one Fritz!Box does not reach all areas any more.

Full list of changes you can find from AVM website.

Suggested method for upgrade your AVM Fritz!Box 7390 is online, via Fritz!Box web interface (http://fritz.box).
